If you are an avid crafter like me, you will like to tackle a craft that is so easy and relaxing to do that you can sit in front of the tv at night a whip up an afghan for yourself or a loved one. Of course, it will take a pretty good length of time to accomplish this. is a good time to get started. What could be better than getting started with the selection of a pattern, especially when it's free.

Get Busy

Now that you have decided to crochet an afghan it's time to get busy and round up the supplies you will need to complete this project. The first thing you will need is a pattern. That you can find on the sites I have suggested.

Next, if you have skeins of yarn sitting around you are ahead of the game. If you don't now is the time to go out an purchase some.

I have found that the thrift store or a garage sale is a wonderful place to find yarn at a rock bottom price. You don't need a full skein to use it for an afghan, especially if you choose a pattern that uses many colors.

You will also need a crochet hook. Look at the pattern and find out what size it calls for. If you have crocheted before you know if you pull tighter or you are a loose stitcher. Adjust the size you use accordingly. If this is the first time crocheting, choose the size the pattern calls for.

Make sure you have a sharp pair of scissors to cut the yarn. If they are dull they ten to chew the yarn.

Now, relax, have fun, and crochet.

      chrstn, that particular pattern came from It is the Cotton candy square. Instead of using that particular yarn you would use bright colors of your choice. When you are joining all of your squares together, you join them with a single crochet stitch in the black. It is an easy pattern but looks beautiful.
